We had a lovely short break, 3 nights B&B. The hotel is a beautiful historic building and should be enjoyed as such. It is old, and I think charming. Our room was clean, small and basic, the breakfast was buffet style and plentiful, the staff were very pleasant. The terrace is amazing, the view over the south bay is wonderful... More

Our high expectations for this magnificent old hotel were shattered as soon as we entered the lobby. After checking in, we found our room was located in one of the lower levels, almost underground!! It was supposed to be a family room, it was cramped, poorly furnished and decorated. Also the view we had out of our window was of... More

Stayed there as part of a coach trip, but will not be returning. The rooms were dirty, to the point where I had to remove feaces from the toilet seat before anyone could use it!!! We were given very specific times for meals and informed if we were late we simply would not get our meal, although I think I... More

The Hotel from the outside is very impressive but looks can be deceiving... I booked a twin room for me and my son... All I can say is filthy... Cobwebs... Stains on the floor and the bathroom smelt disgusting... I asked for another room but being summer period there were none, unless I wanted to pay a lot more money.... More

Was due to stay at The Grand today. Arrived at 2.30pm and there was a huge queue for check in. I was with my partner and baby and queued for around 15 mins but with my car double parked outside the hotel (there is very little parking) I decided against it. Other frustrated guests said they thought the queue was... More

The Grand Hotel could stand with some upgrading, cleaning and just general maintenance. It has a great exterior and is in a great location but is very badly dated. Even a fresh coat of paint on the interior would help. Breakfast was well below average and the organisation of the buffet was abyssal.

This was our destination on a 'mystery' 4 night stay in Scarborough. If we had the chance to know where we were going & find it on here for reviews, we would not have gone. The hotel was grubby & we had rigidly set times for meals. The room was on the 6th floor with a window that looked out... More

We stayed for a long weekend at the grand and had pretty good time the room was a small double, clean but dated. The wifi wasn't available in the bedroom. However the staff were friendly yet stretched. The food was good, a hot fresh buffet style breakfast. Would have preferred a mug of tea lol! But the main thing was... More
